Generally I have enjoyed almost every hard case crime book I’ve read. And I’m always willing to experiment and try new one. But I found this Westlake book to be sub par. It’s interesting to illustrate a point in time in pulp fiction when authors were paid for the word and it showed. There are a few moments that are excellent but the book is overwhelmed by a slow pace, weak character development and a plot that just barely comes together. There are a few good surprises but I think there are other books and authors in the hard case crime series who have done it better
A solid story with a good performance. Has that gritty, hardcore, old old-school crime.story feel.
